Remembering the future

In 'Remembering the Future', Darran Anderson will re-assess utopian ideas in an age of pessimism. In contrast to our technological advances, we seem increasingly powerless and disconnected from our urban surroundings. Looking at projects from Bauhaus to Bjarke Ingels, Anderson will examine the challenges we face and what is needed to reclaim the city for the citizen.
